The Night the City Was Filled with Music and Flowers

Artist Colleen Attara lives in Yardley, Pa., but at least inside her head she has a view of the jewels that glow on Philadelphia’s skyline at night. Pictured, left, is “The Night the City Was Filled with Music and Flowers.” On view at ARTisZen Arts in Lambertville through Jan. 9, “The Night” uses an old window as a canvas. She also uses wire, beads and Plexiglas to actually “bring the art out of the window making it three-dimensional.”

“I like the contrast of something very old becoming something new using bright acrylic paints and some ingenuity,” says Ms. Attara, a former TV advertising executive. “My art usually starts out as an old window someone wants to discard and ends up on a gallery wall.”

  1. What a cool way of recycling an old window to create a piece of art. I especially like the three-dimensional aspect of it. Fun colors too.
